    It's The Opponents Job!



    I'm reading all of these criticisms about the fake punt for a TD and running up the score and us being classless.

    I say WHATEVER! When the Texans handed us our behinds, it was "the Texans and the rest of the AFC." Yes they beat us and we beat the lowly Raiders. Who cares?

    We dominated in every phase and when you play Carson Palmer whose arm can change a game quickly you hit the gas until the final second.

    So stop with this classless garbage. We whooped booty 55-20.

    7-2!

    Congrats RAVENS!

    Like I said in another thread, that will probably be merged with this one, what dumb ass coach is going to let their team get fooled by that in the playoffs? None.

    It was a bit classless, but I didn't mind it as much considering it happened right after some azzclown for Oakland started jawing with Boldin after routinely defending a pass even though he was down 24 points at the time. I was actually wondering if Harbaugh decided to go for it just because of that exchange (but I doubt it).

    I am not juiced we hung 55 on a shitty team at home, but the fact we went for 7 instead of 3 doesn't bother me in the least. If opposing teams don't like it, then stop it, or walk of the field and forfeit the game.

    On spot! This is pro football. Every team is paid to score and to stop being scored on. If they can't do it then to damn bad for them

    Why shouldn't you be juiced? It's not like Oakland's allowing 55 every game. We still did better against them than any other team did.

    I'm happy, but all I am saying is temper it. We aren't 55 points good as Oakland was 55 point that bad today. Plus, Richard Seymour not playing was huge if you are going to attribute Oakland's previous performances.

    Hey, they collect a check, played their best, but don't expect shit to look like that when the Steelers come knocking.

    And you've just proved to me why it wasnt classless in the least.

    24 points down with 20 minutes of football left is not a lock. They saw something in the Raiders formation and exploited it.

    It's what every competent coach should do in the same situation.

    I'm glad they scored 7 instead of kicking the FG....show 'em whats up!

    Wonder if anyone will get the reference to my rant in the game thread? ;-)

    Well, it would have been 27 points had we kicked the FG, but I agree it wasn't quite a "lock."

    Look at it this way - we showed them a weakness in a game they were going to lose anyway. Better to get this error exposed today, than when they're up 17-13 with 5:00 to go in a division game.

    We didn't have to expose the flaw in their scheme. Way I figure, they should be thanking us for doing so.

    The Ravens do some trickery with Koch every year. Good teams expect it and don't give them an opportunity to pull that crap. Bad teams fall for it every time.

    Especially when you consider that this is the same QB who once hung 24 points on us in the 4th quarter alone (which could easily have been 28, considering they opted to kick a chip-shot FG to win the game when they had a 1st-and-goal from the 5). See the boxscore from the Dec 5th, 2004 Ravens/Bengals game...also played at M&T, BTW.

    Is this Oak team as good as that Cincy team? No. But so what. with 20+min to play in the game, you should never have to apologize for maximizing your scoring opportunities.

    I can't believe this is actually being discussed. You take any points you can get in the NFL. Period end of story. The Raiders coach even said we have to stop them.
